Are you familiar with loss? Do you know what it feels like to barely get by? Are you no stranger to what it feels like to have a piece of your heart missing?
If you are, I can relate.
It’s been almost 6 months since my husband and children’s father passed. At this point I am more aware of the world around me; the world that doesn’t stop just because I am in pain. I am feeling like my days are more focused and my time is spent more intentionally with my children. Yet one thing is missing, my life partner, but most importantly, my children’s daddy.
That is what hurts the most. It’s the cause of those feelings that creep up throughout the day when something sparks a memory of our loss or one of them says, “I miss daddy.” It’s those moments I want to break down and begin to wonder, “Why THEM?”
“Why do my children have to be without THEIR daddy?”
And then there’s the doubt and disbelief the enemy uses to convince me they will ALWAYS be without a daddy. When it passes, I remember The Lord has a plan for His children and it is far bigger than I can see or comprehend. Then I know I am in the best hands possible; the hands of our Creator who is the giver of life, hope, and a future. It doesn’t get much better than that.
And guess what? We get to wake up every day and serve Him.
What an honor!
Are you weary? Are you unsure about the future?
I am, but I also know God is in control. Our future is in His hands. I have to admit, that is pretty comforting.
